For years Jenn has been thinking and writing about our unity as a collective body of humanity. Recently she has begun to vlog some of her thoughts from a yoga teacher's perspective on growing unity and investing in our thought life about it. Watch and follow my FB page at Cogrity: Conversations about Unity.
During uncertain times, many of us want to increase our resilience and to be able to share joy and hope with others. We can have hope for the healing of our larger collective body of humanity because the intelligence at work in it is the same intelligence behind the healing mechanism in the human body.
Rather than being intolerant towards our differences, we can cultivate a practice of allowing others to have their dissimilar responses, knowing that these responses are appropriate given our various assignments in the body.
Our oppositional positions are actually not for the purpose of division, but are in place for strength and resilience for the body of humanity. If we can understand our opposition as a resource, we can develop reverence for opposition and begin to contemplate how to coordinate our differences.
When the human body becomes imbalanced, appropriate movement can help to release the inherent healing mechanism. Similarly, as a body of humanity we need to learn how to address power imbalance by privileged people groups yielding power and disenfranchised groups learning to trust again.

The cost of the retreat is just $295 per person. I provide dinner on Friday to uncomplicate arrival, and can arrange for a nice celebratory brunch on Sunday before departure if desired. (Sunday brunch would be an additional $40 per person). Participants bring food for Saturday and overnight stays at my house are no charge. Each of the four people will have their own room and option to practice masked or not since they will be six feet apart 🙂. Two of the four main bedrooms have two beds if there are people who feel comfortable sharing/are from the same household. We also have two smaller rooms available if you have six participants and some don’t mind snug accommodations. Once you have gathered your friend group just contact me about a date! Private sessions available in the afternoons.

Jenn’s yoga retreats are transcendent. She skillfully waves mind, body and spirit into a deep practice that is both transformative and empowering. I cannot say enough positive things to describe the time with Jenn! –Lisa
Jenn is a gifted healer and she fosters a beautiful and sacred space. Spending time at Tehom Qara is like taking a nourishing sip of cool water that you didn’t know you needed so much. In a short time your mind, body and soul are rejuvenated and bursting with gratitude. –Lilli
Fantastic experience for beginners to advanced. Beautiful environment!
Such a beautiful atmosphere for a true get-away! The yoga practice was inspiring, the small class size allowed time for individual/personal improvement. Great weekend for your mind, body, and spirit! –Patty
The moment you step onto the property the serenity of the trees, fresh air, and gracious hosts envelop you allowing you to be fully ready for the relaxation, healing, mind and body work that you came for. Jenn somehow sees through you, to know what your body and spirit need to fill yourself up. –Jess
A retreat with Jenn will heal your mind, body and spirit. I feel rejuvenated and strong enough—mentally and physically—to face anything the world throws at me.
She is a treasure, and not a minute spent with Jenn, in and around her home, is ever wasted. After months of stress and exhaustion, I could finally breathe freely after my time with her. nbsp; –Sophie
I loved the walk, the beauty, the fresh air. I feel at peace and energized at the same time. This has been healing and calming to my overactive mind and sedentary body. Thank you for offering this supportive space. nbsp; –Nicole
"Jenn's class has completely transformed my life. When I first started practicing with her a little over a year ago, I went to class once a week with the goal of becoming more flexible. Within months, I began following her around to different studios--and now my goal is to become a yoga instructor myself. Practicing with Jenn has improved my flexibility, strengthened my body and quieted my mind. She is an amazing teacher."--Erica
“Jenn’s healing touch offered immediate relief from my daily migraine suffering which had lasted for over a month! In addition to the time and care she took with me during my cranio therapy session, Jenn left me with suggestions for relaxation, stretching, and massage exercises to assist me with ongoing tightness, stress, and pain management. I found it helpful to have my session in a quiet place that allowed me to focus intently on the therapy– much of which is about the ability to concentrate on the important connections between the mind and the physical.” –Sarah
"Jenn's gift among others is her interest to "explain" and demonstrate the why's and how's of the posses and the practice of yoga. She is not one of those teachers who tells you to do a pose and then good luck in trying to figure it out. She tells you how to do the poses. She shows you how to do the poses. She tells you why you are doing the poses, and most importantly she walks around the room to make sure (as time allows) that her students are doing the poses correctly so as to gain the benefit from the practice and more importantly not harm yourself from doing something incorrectly. Jenn is an amazingly caring and kind person who has a passion for teaching yoga, and she is very good at what she does." --Stan
“I’ve never been able to breathe as freely and as easily as I could after Jenn worked on me. I felt so much peace and lightness in comparison with the anxiety and heaviness that I walked in with. Just a few days ago I had to breathe through something really difficult, and I thought, what would I have done without Jenn and the tools she’s given me? Jenn’s wisdom and knowledge paired with so much care and intentionality made me feel incredible safe and taken care of,
and I’m so grateful for that.” –Katie
